This is an Excel bug. I have reported it to the Excel team recently in hopes they'll fix it in the next version of Excel.

If this is a blocking problem for you right now, I would suggest you do one of three things:

1. Just add the calculations back in after you change connections.

2. Use the Open XML SDK to change the connection string via code:

3. Open a support case with Microsoft and get them to fix this in Excel 2010 and provide you a hotfix.

Please keep us posted which route you choose. I'll try to remember to update this thread if I find out any information on whether this will be fixed in Excel vNext.

It doesn't appear they're going to fix this bug in Excel 2013. If you have any luck with submitting a ticket to Microsoft yourself, let us know.
